Dead Horse Poll - Seven Rounds in the Magazine?
« on: March 03, 2014, 09:32:31 PM »
I know it is a dead horse, but the subject came up again at WR.  So, I began wondering how a poll would come out.  I am not interested in comments, this subject has been cussed and discussed completely on here on the WBAS wire.  Search out those threads and post your comments there.

Okay! We had the option of loading 7 on two stages yesterday. I did it on one stage and did not have any trouble remembering to count accurately.

Not saying I like it... :P  :-\  ;)

I would prefer to have the entire match be one way or the other or have any seven round stages be last. After one seven round stage, our MD did remind folks to check their mags to ensure they had five in them.

I'm fine with seven rounds, but it should only be for the whole match. We have done this
at Cowtown, AZ with no problems.

Next Sat the 29th we will be loading 7 for all six stages.

WAHOO!!

It's a start.

I am lobbying for cocked and locked at this match.

After all, anyone who cannot handle a 1911 stoked with 7 cocked and locked as it was designed for should not touch one, much less pick one up and for sure not try to compete in a modern gun game with one.

It was a major mistake to start this game with the 5 round limit. It is seriously stunting our growth with those who might  want to participate but scoff at the limit and will not join in with us so long as the limit is the way we play this game. They cannot wrap their heads around it.

Just the way it is here in the real world.

The sooner WBAS wakes up and gets with the program the better off we will be. After all, 7 rounds is coming, cocked and locked is coming. It's not a matter of if but when. Might as well be tomorrow since it cannot be yesterday. For sure the sooner the better.

Seven (7) Rounds in the magazine!  And ten (10) rounds in the rifles and six rounds in the shotgun too.  If I'm gonna drive to a match, I want to shoot as much as possible!

There is no need to load 10 in the rifle on every stage. Here is where we can get creative. I like to see 5, 6, 8 etc with widely varying distances and arrays with the rifle. After all, no one comes to WB shooting for lever gun toggling. No, the charm of WB is the utilization of the classic 1911. Less rifle can allow more pistol.

5 should be the standard load out for the shotgun. Many old 97s have been cratered trying to wedge 6 in a 5 round tube. There's no sense in it, it's nonsense. 5 is plenty.

HI Gang; There is new shooters who have not come from a cocked and locked action shooting game. So for safety and    attracting NEW  shooters hammer down on a empty chamber is the best way to stay.  Did the miltary carry the 1911 hammer down on a empty chamber?
As to seven rounds , sure, it is one more way to seperate WB from CAS.

Since I can't pin this at the top comments are now allowed.  I just didn't want to rehash what has been hashed.  The scuttle-butt from WR was that the only shooters pushing for 7 rounds in the mag were new shooters who hadn't shot WBAS much.  Judging from the voting I bet that is not true.
